Ah, that's interesting, as the JamMan can provide MIDI clock info, I'll 
to try driving the G2 with the JamMan.... could be fun! :o)

Do NOT get the G2 solely as a loop device - it's a great effect, but not
worth the  money. As a multi FX however, I've not come across anything
that's anywhere near as good. I write for Guitarist magazine in the UK and
get to try out every new FX unit on the market, just about, and this is the
best, most versatile, instrument effects unit I've ever tried. If you want
the best, it's worth the $$$$. If you just want something for fun, go for a
floor unit...
